(PRESS RELEASE) The MJSA Education Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications from students interested in turning their passion for the design, manufacture, and/or repair of jewelry into careers.

Any student who is a U.S. citizen and enrolled in a jewelry program, whether at a university or trade school, can apply for a scholarship. Applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need, and they’ll be assessed based on their course of study, career plans, academics, recommendations, and related experience.

The deadline for applications is May 15. To learn more, go to the Scholarships page in the Career Connections section of here.

The MJSA Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit subsidiary of MJSA, the U.S. trade alliance dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design. Since 1997, the Foundation has awarded over $240,000 in scholarship support, including a total of $12,500 in funding provided over the past several years by the Providence Jewelers Club (for students attending Rhode Island schools). All the funds are managed by the Rhode Island Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the MJSA Education Foundation.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
